Research Utilization in Social Work Education.
Briar, Scott, Ed.; And Others
The Project on Research Utilization in Social Work Education established in 1976 is described. There are eight chapters to the report. Chapter 1 describes the project. The broad goals of the project were to: (1) analyze the dynamics of research utilization in social work; (2) identify the obstacles to research utilization, especially those that may exist in social work education; and (3) recommend ways of achieving effective research in social work. Chapter 2 reviews the development of research curricula in a number of social work degree programs over the decade ending with 1979. Chapter 3 identifies five models of research in social work and analyzes their implications for social work education. An initial report of a survey of social work students designed to have students describe what they know and think about research is presented in chapter 4. Chapter 5 analyzes nine innovative approaches to research instruction in social work education and considers their implications for research preparation in social work. Chapter 6 summarizes some of the major themes that emerged in the project's regional conferences. Qualitative research methods are discussed in chapter 7. The final chapter discusses project recommendations. (Author/RM)
